Shanil Verjee is a freshman from Vancouver, Canada. If she had to describe herself in just a few words, she would say that she is ambitious, witty, and (if she manages enough sleep the night before) energetic! She love making her friends and family laugh and smile. She immensely enjoys performing arts, debate, public speaking, and writing. In addition to writing for the Forum, she works at the Kravis Leadership Institute, and is a member of the Under The Lights theatre group, Mock Trial, and the Alumni Relations Committee of Senate. As a possible career path, she would be interested in pursuing international relations, through international law, but at this stage she is not really sure. Another thing she loves to do is travel. Her favourite place to travel is Europe, but she would also love to visit Japan one day!
